Trivia: As mentioned in the 'mistakes' section, Barbara Windor's bra was snatched from her with the aid of a fishing line. What is not so widely known, however, is the shot that made it into "Carry On Camping" was, in fact the second take of that shot. On the first take of getting Ms. Windsor's bra to fly though the air, the bra did NOT come off - Barbara Windsor was pulled and landed face down in the mud.
